To make the daffodils, you’ll need some white or wholegrain wraps, a sharp knife, muffin tray, some mozzarella cheese and eggs.

You can also season the daffodils with salt and pepper. 

‘Some say kids eat with their eyes, I tried but can’t as I wear glasses, otherwise these look really inviting and the novelty of eating a daffodil for breakfast is pretty cool,’ George said.

INGREDIENTS

Wraps x 6-8

Eggs x 6-8

Mozzarella cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

METHOD 

1. Cut a square out of the wrap, get rid of the square for something else and keep the edges.

2. Arrange two edges in each muffin tray in your holder.

3. Add some cheese of your choice. George likes to use mozzarella because it melts really well.

4. Then, crack an egg into each muffin tray and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

5. Put the mix in the oven for seven to eight minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

6. Serve hot with sauce if desired.

To make the egg daffodils, George first of all recommends you first of all grab a wrap, knife and a breadboard.  

‘What I’m going to do first is I’m going to cut a square out of the wrap,’ George said.

‘The squares will be used to make some lunch later, but you don’t need them at the moment. You just need the edges.’

Once you’ve cut a few wraps, the father-of-two said you should get your muffin tray and pop two of the edges into each section so they stick up like flower petals.

‘Next, we are going to add some cheese, I’m using mozzarella because it melts really well,’ he said.  

‘For the feature, you need some eggs, and just crack an egg in each space.’

Finish by adding a pinch of salt and pepper and then put the dish in the oven for between seven and eight minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

‘The finished result is the perfect weekend breakfast,’ George concluded.

Thousands who saw the recipe said they loved the idea and couldn’t wait to try it for themselves.

‘Your creative ideas are such an inspiration, thank you for sharing,’ one commenter posted.

‘Yum! I love it,’ another added.

'Bright colours in the form of fresh produce [are key], use the rainbow as a form of inspiration,' George told Daily Mail Australia (one of his lunchboxes pictured)

While you might think that preparing a lunchbox that is as good looking as George's takes hours, the 45-year-old said that in fact, it only takes him between five and ten minutes (one of his lunchboxes pictured)

The father of two also recommends making your sandwiches less boring by putting twists on them.

George regularly makes a ‘ravwich’, which is his take on the Italian ravioli, or the ‘spring-wich’, which is his take on a Chinese spring roll – for his two girls, and he said both make a fun alternative to a regular sandwich.

‘A bento box is also a cool and easier way to pack school lunches,’ he said.

‘There is no cross contamination – which is often an issue for kids – and it’s also leak proof, which means the food looks good.’

While you might think that preparing a lunchbox that is as good looking as George’s takes hours, the 45-year-old said that in fact, it only takes him between five and ten minutes.

‘I’m usually prepared, which helps,’ he said.

‘I spend one afternoon peeling, cutting and washing all the fruit and veggies. Then I can just keep them in airtight containers in the fridge ready to go.’

Typically his lunches are stuffed full of ‘bite-sized vegetables’.

Mini cucumbers, mini tomatoes and mini carrots are big hits in his household, while using a red capsicum as a cup for other food has also proven popular.

‘Anything bite-sized is less daunting for children,’ he said.

‘They’re more likely to pick it up and try it. Smaller pieces of fruit are fun to use for their bright colours also. Strawberries and grapes are my favourites.’
